honestly there are much better shows
Reviews are contagious and sadly unreliable. This show starts off with some nice moments but just degenerates into sloppiness and sludge.
It's just sad after hearing a show like this, to see all these rave reviews about how the band was "ON" and how Revolution was a "masterpiece". Wow, it honestly was a mess.
While the show certainly has moments (mostly in set 1), it's just dragging itself the rest of the way, sloppy, and with Garcia gasping for air.
Anyone uninitiated, reading these delusional reviews, then listening for him/herself will just have more fodder to claim that the GD are a joke and that the fans are clueless. Neither is true, though these reviews would lead you to think otherwise.
The band has put out a slew of wonderful shows and there are so many better ones than this (and better ones from this tour, too). This show may be worth hearing for some, but why do we keep claiming rave reviews for moments of total wreck? Emperor's New Clothes Syndrome perhaps?

It should also bear mention that some of the arrangements are quite uncommon. I like it. Nice Sennheiser crisp factor here too. All in all a solid four+. Yea, I know, I'm a nit picker. Chalk that up to having worked more shows than allot of people have seen. And then there's that pesky feed back...

this is the most unique gd song selection i have ever seen. there are a ton of rarely seen covers. out of the gd originals, the song selection is not as solid. i like broke down palace though.
